Donald Trump has told his cheering supporters in North Carolina that 'the economy will collapse' if Joe Biden is elected in November, warning that 'mob rule' will take over the United States.
Speaking in Winston-Salem on Tuesday night, the president enjoyed riffing off his familiar themes of chaos in Democrat-run cities and the mental stability of his opponent.
'Biden's plan is to appease the domestic terrorists. My plan is to arrest them,' he said.
Trump said before China sent 'the plague' he was 'sailing through an easy election'.
Trump also attacked Biden's running mate Kamala Harris, saying it would be 'an insult to the country' is she became the first female president.
Harris is on the ticket as Biden's vice-president pick.

Trump told the crowd that Biden claimed to be on the side of blue collar workers, but had 'stabbed them in the back' with his support for free trade.
The president said Biden was in thrall to China, and attacked him for his backing of the North American Free Trade Agreement - NAFTA. Trump has since repealed and replaced NAFTA with the North America Canada Trade Deal.
'Joe Biden is weak, and he is always caving to China,' he said.
Referencing the much-vaunted border wall - a key 2016 campaign promise - Trump insisted Mexico was indeed paying for it.
'Mexico is paying for the wall,' he said. 'Even though they don't say it.
'We're going to put a toll booth at the border. And maybe do something with remittances,' he said.
